At the Wythe hotel, just past the front desk you’ll find a floral backdrop and showcase of Lowercase’s summer collection of designer eyewear. Named a favorite by Manrepeller, featured in W Magazine, Glamour and the LA times as part of this seasons best eyewear, we’ve got a lot of attention from style trailblazers!
We wanted to give Brooklyn locals the chance to experience the product for themselves, so have set up shop for the summer at the Wythe. Come and see the eyewear haven, talk with the craftsman who make the product from start to finish, and snag a snap on our very instagrammable floral wall!
A perfect experience for those who appreciate true craftsmanship, design, sustainable business and local, independent brands.
We look forward to seeing you at the Wythe!

Experience Fiddler on the Roof in a new way– in Yiddish, the language of Tevye and his family! Directed by Oscar and Tony Award-winner Joel Grey, the rich Yiddish translation by Shraga Friedman, z”l, adds new depth and dimension to the most well-known Jewish musical in the world. Don’t miss the beloved story of a community and its struggle to balance traditions and desires in a changing world. The little town of Anatevka will bustle with the sounds of mame-loshn in the U.S. premiere of Fiddler in Yiddish from July 4 through August 26, 2018, at the Museum of Jewish Heritage.
Want to send your child to a New York City Department of Education Selective Enrollment High School? Standardized test scores are the key to getting your child into one of these top schools. Among those (few) things that all New Yorkers can agree on, the excellence of the city’s Specialized High Schools surely occupies a special place of distinction. Publicly funded and administered, these nine high schools provide a world-class education that is the envy of many an independent school.
Today’s high school admissions process is more competitive than ever. Only 17% of students that apply are accepted into one of the New York City Department of Education Selective Enrollment High Schools. The average GPA for all Selective Enrollment High Schools is about 3.7, but even superior grades and great 7th grade standardized test scores will not guarantee acceptance.

Live at the Archway is DUMBO’s signature series: featuring dynamic musical performances + pop-up gallery + interactive art experience, in a magical, only-in-DUMBO setting. Always free, always all ages + always rain or shine.
This week at Live at the Archway, get down with the soul pop stylings of Michael Blume. Plus, get up-close with a live art experience led by DUMBO-based artist Emily Jean Ulrich.
ON STAGE: Michael Blume
IN THE GALLERY: Emily Ulrich Studio
The Archway Under the Manhattan Bridge is a public plaza in DUMBO, Brooklyn. It’s on Water St between Anchorage Place and Adams St.
With an unbridled passion and soul-baring rawness, Michael Blume’s music teems with honeyed vocals, soulful scatting, and thoughtful, socially conscious lyrics that are both personal and universal. Selling out back-to-back shows at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom and performing at major music festivals across the country including South by Southwest, Governor’s Ball, Lollapalooza and Firefly, he enchants audiences with confessional and inspirational performances. With a musical background rooted in a cappella, Blume effortlessly produces complex vocal arrangements that showcase his comprehensive musicianship and perfectly complement his stellar range.
Emily Jean Ullrich uses glitter and glue to make shiny landscapes.
Every week at Live at the Archway, we assemble (tool-free!) Tfnf’s “The Space Station.” It is a replica, in flat pack, modular, franchisable form, of the DUMBO gallery This Friday or Next Friday– “likely the tiniest, most inconsequential gallery in NYC, maybe on the face of the Earth” – founded and run by Nathan Sinai Rayman since 2013 as both a gallery and an artwork. We exhibit a new DUMBO-based artist every Thursday, and invite the public to engage through a live art component, where the artist and public create a collaborative piece together over the course of three hours.
